Buyers unlock door to TriBeCa homes at Keystone Building.

The Keystone Building, Tribeca's newest residential condominium conversion, is opening its doors to buyers looking to purchase homes combining the character of early 20th century architecture and today's modern features. The former commercial loft building, located at 38-44 Warren St., between W. Broadway and Church St., is being developed by East Tribeca Associates LLC, a partnership between KJ Warren Associates LLC and EMJ Builders LLC.

Once home to the Odd Job Trading Company, which during the early 20th century began selling its wares on pushcarts to shoppers in the bustling Lower East Side, the Keystone Building consists of four, contiguous, five-story buildings. Four additional stories with setbacks for terraces are being added to the structure to create an elegant, nine-story residence.

Named for one of its most impressive architectural components, the Keystone Building exterior exudes old-world style and character. Nicholas Tjartjalis Architects has redesigned the building's facade, emphasizing its distinctive cornice and roof line. Inside, there is an attractive lobby featuring a Stone tile floor, a new high-speed elevator, and a video intercom security system. The property has been smart-wired for high-speed Internet access, telephones, fax, fiber optic, and cable TV.

The Keystone Building's 24 residences, which range in size from 1,248 SF to 2,815 SF, offer lofty ceiling heights of up to 11 feet, solid core oak doors with Schlage hardware, and new double glazed, oversized, solid wood-clad Pella windows. Deluxe kitchens possess handcrafted, maple kitchen cabinets and granite countertops and backsplashes, as well as top end appliances such as Sub Zero refrigerators, Bosch stainless steel dishwashers, Thermador gas ranges, GE Profile microwaves, and stainless steel Sub Zero, high capacity wine coolers. Expansive master bedroom suites contain oversized master bathrooms featuring his and her vanities, a 6' soaking bathtub, and separate stall shower. Other residence amenities include spacious walk-in closets and a separate laundry room with a Bosch washer/dryer. Wood burning fireplaces further enhance the three penthouse units.

Six of the units have individual, personal terraces, and the remaining units share a large common roof deck. Stunning Hudson River views can be seen from floors six through nine.

"The KeyStone Building provides a wonderful opportunity for those seeking a home that captures the artistry of old New York and the brilliance of modem Manhattan," said Kenneth S. Horn, the managing member of KJ Warren, the development partner. "It's truly a find for those who want a dream home amidst Tribeca' s great restaurants and shopping, good schools, convenient transportation, and close proximity to a variety of Downtown neighborhoods."

Prices for loft residences range from $696,000,500 to $1,850,000 and will be available for occupancy by February 2002.
